GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Traded in other countries:6LD1.Germany,
SemiLEDs Corp develops, manufactures and sells high performance light emitting diodes (LEDs). The Company's products are LED chips and LED components, as well as lighting products.

SemiLEDs Corp was incorporated in Delaware on January 2005. The Company develops, manufacture and sell LED chips and LED components that are among the industry LED products on both a lumens per watt and cost per lumen basis. Its products are used for general lighting applications, including street lights and commercial, industrial and residential lighting. It sells blue, green and ultraviolet (UV) LED chips under its MvpLED brand to a customer base that is heavily concentrated in Asia, in particular China and Taiwan, as well as in Russia and North America. The Company sells its LED chips to packagers or to distributors, who in turn sell to packagers. In addition, it packages a portion of its LED chips into LED components, which its sell to distributors and end-customers in selected markets. Its proprietary technology integrates copper alloy in a vertical LED structure. It first grows epitaxial layers on a sapphire wafer. The epitaxial layers are multiple doped GaN layers. At this point in the process, its structure has the following order (i) sapphire; (ii) n-doped GaN (N-GaN); (iii) multi-quantum well layers (MQWs); and (iv) p-doped GaN (P-GaN). Next, it deposit and define (by patterning and etching) multiple metal layers on the P-GaN layer. These metal layers consist of several different mirror layers and copper alloy layers, which are deposited on top of the mirror layers by electroplating. The copper alloy metal layers, which are collectively called the P-Contact Metal Layer, create low resistance contact with the P-GaN layer. Its principal products are LED chips and LED components. In LED Chips it produces a variety of blue, green and UV LED chips, currently ranging from chip sizes of 380 microns, or µm, by 380µm to 1520µm by 1520µm, which are capable of providing over 100 lumens per watt when properly packaged as cool white emitters. It sells its LED chips to packaging customers or to distributors, who in turn sell to packagers. Its LED chips are used primarily for applications in the general lighting market, including street lights and commercial, industrial and residential lighting. They are also used in other markets such as UV applications, backlighting, medical and automotive applications. In LED Components it currently packages a portion of its LED chips into LED components for sale to distributors and end-customers in selected markets. The majority of its LED components use its 1200µm by 1200µm, 1070µm by 1070µm and 860µm by 860µm chips, which are combined with phosphors to produce components with various color temperatures. Its LED components include different form factors comprised of frame and silicon packaged devices. It applies its proprietary design for the packaging process, such as wafer level phosphor coating, to optimize the optical and thermal properties of the LED component. Its packaging process includes chip bonding, wire bonding, phosphor coating, encapsulation, scribing, dicing and testing.
